Sixten Redlös or 6-10 Redlös started out as Rövens Hämd (translation – the revenge of the arse) in 1981. Origin from the Husqvarna / Jönköping twin-city, the band became quite popular in the region and in Sweden as well. They played a lot of gigs in Sweden and Scandinavia and managed also to make a UK tour. The setting was: Jöjje (vox), Hedda (bass), Johan Lundgren (guitar). They had a bunch of drummers.

As a band, Sixten Redlös reminds somewhat of KSMB but released vinyl a few years later so the hype was kind of over. However – as mentioned above they have a lot of fans and a very popular page on Facebook. The first single was released in 1984 followed by a second in 1985 and an LP in 1987. They made a great gig at the Hultsfred festival in 1987 (the biggest festival in Sweden at that time). I was myself in Hultsfred that year and saw Krunch but I can’t remember if I saw Sixten Redlös. I guess my body was there but since I was quite “redlös”, my brain was most likely somewhere else. After this gig the members moved to other cities and the success could not be followed up. Hedda (bass) moved over to G-anx. In 1994 Sixten Redlös made their first reunion (in conjunction of the release of a compilation CD) and have since that held a several very well received gigs

I originally bought these two singles in the mid 80’s but a lot of stuff got damaged as I had a flood in my basement some 20 years ago. You can still find their stuff including the LP for 6 dollars. I did.!!

    The first 6-10 is one of my all time fave swedish punk 7″

    I wish I was an animal is a huge hit in my book. BTW G-anx used to rehearse the next house from the one I grew up in, so they must’ve been the first punk band I saw playing.

Got something to say?
